Omotrack – Picnic Concerts


The Nordic House opens the glass doors and invites you to concerts under the luminous Icelandic sky every Sunday afternoon (3 PM) during the summer in our beautiful greenhouse. The Picnic Concert Series presents Icelandic and Nordic artists with music inspired by tradition or experimenting with the newest genres and tendencies. The concerts are free and open for all! 

The indie-electro band Omotrack has played and toured music festivals in many parts of Iceland and abroad since 2015. They drew the band’s name from the small village of Omo Rate in Ethiopia where the brothers grew up. Their newest album Wild Contrast is about the contrasts between their two homelands. The interaction between music and visual art is something the brothers value highly, and they have made graphic imagery for every song they have released. 

You can buy coffee, cake, food or drinks in Aalto Bistro to take out or enjoy afterwards in the iconic rooms of Alvar Aalto.
